Bloomfield Gymnastics has spent more than 25 years coaching budding gymnasts. The staff of former competitors and fitness enthusiasts breed a new generation of athletes with gymnastics, cheerleading, and tumbling classes for children aged 2 to 18. Classes of up to eight students begin with simple warm-ups and maneuvers in KinderGym, held in a colorful gym with balance beams, uneven bars, and all other equipment essential to Olympic-level competition with the exception of Olympic-level tomato hurlers. Sessions progress to the challenging jumps and stunts of Cheernastics and the conditioning of adult classes. Private lessons, camps, and supervised open gym sessions serve up alternative occasions to hone flips, flourishes, and balance that will rival that of 10 power-line-perching crows.
Fitness 19's founders launched their first family-oriented gyms in 2003, hoping to splash the exercising experience with local flavor and familiarity. Life Fitness cardio machines—including treadmills and ellipticals—unite with strength-training machines and free weights to help members to build leaner physiques as certified personal trainers patrol the deep-red-carpeted workout area. The expert staff can also guide clients through yoga, martial arts, and weight loss–centric personal-training sessions. Every location also hosts a kids' room, where youngsters can craft macaroni kettlebells under the supervision of a full-time staff member.
Fitness Rx's team of instructors deploys to dozens of locations throughout southeastern Michigan to lead a staggering array of fitness classes. Whether they're guiding groups through kickboxing's strikes, yoga poses, or Pilates’ core-strengthening moves, they draw on their diverse backgrounds, years of experience, and enthusiasm. Additionally, trainers meet for one-on-one or semi-private sessions, and supplement workouts with nutrition support to help clients achieve varied goals, from building strength to fitting back inside their high-school-graduation cap.
The chrome-accented d?cor of the facility as well as the bright red and yellow of the machines might hearken back to the 1950's, but the equipment is completely 21st-century. Guests jog, cycle, and step away calories on cardio machines equipped with personal LCD screens that broadcast DirectTV. A supervised playroom keeps tots occupied while their parents work out, and group fitness classes such as Zumba let guests tone muscle in tandem. After a workout, guests can take sips at a smoothie bar styled like an old-fashioned diner, or get bronzed in a tanning bed.
Carpeted with grass, bordered by floor-to-ceiling windows, and housed beneath multi-story ceilings supported by exposed red beams, D1 Detroit's massive indoor arena is a garden for budding athletes. The fitness center's training programs include age-specific boot camps, strength coaching, and sports training to help improve student-athletes' skills, no matter if they're in high school or college. While most of the programs are for groups, D1-on-One is a special program that's built around individual attention and confidence-boosting pats on the back.
Every time somebody plants a dumbbell in wet soil, a new Anytime Fitness location pops up. That's how there got to be more than two-thousand of them across North America. That, and also because each of the 24/7 locations are true to their name, allowing members to show up literally any time they want for weight-lifting sessions and cardio workouts. The club also offers personal training and high-tech online tools that let folks track burned calories and other fitness metrics.
